You had to feel good for Jon Hood. The sophomore scored 18 points and dished four assists. He made seven of nine shots, including four of six from behind the three-point line.
Afterward, Hood said he felt pretty confident after the shoot-around, and that “We started to click” in the win over the Bleu Devils. Hood also said that Terrence Jones “is really good when he plays like he did tonight.”
As for himself, Hood said he has worked on his defense, and his ball-handling. “I’ve come a long way since last year as a player,” he said, also crediting the summer basketball he played in China as helping his development.
